Psychological and Social wellness as the best gateway to biological wellness.
When we deliver consultancy, we encourage an entirely fresh look at the way a service exists within, and offers support to, it's local community. We believe that support services can be hubs of healthy ageing for all, at every age, for both physical and mental health. We believe that the investment made by individuals, communities and governments in such integrated organisations delivers the most value when those services become beacons in their communities, involving the maximum of local natural assets, and through both design and service style, offer a refreshed mindset, culture and vision for the meaning of wellness on a local and national level.

Chi™ is our branded model for service design, development and coaching.
C represents 'creative freedom'. Wellness is desirable because of the freedom it brings, underlying freedom is the nature of creativity - every 'free' action requires creative thought, imagination and spirit. The right hand side of the brain is shown to lead on feelings, emotion, imagination, and creative activity, the keys to achieving sustainable causes of wellbeing for each of us as individuals throughout our lives. Crucial to identitiy development and coping with stress, developing relationships, making positive choices, taking action.
H represents 'humanity and habitat'. There are basic factors at play simply by the fact of being human in a habitat. The human brain, body and senses function along given spectrums, and are subject to needs, biases, syndromes, particular behaviors and symptoms. Understanding these and their relationship to varying styles of habitat is crucial. Habitat describes how the environments that surround us effect us directly, and that an environment is a relational phenomenon - we and it are co-responsive to each other.
I represents identity. We all as individuals are continually developing and changing our identity moment to moment, day to day, month to month. When we face challenges, sense of identity becomes critical. It is vital to understand the influences and processes of identity collapse, change and development as well as possible if we are to support people positively through challenging times, especially in relation to mental and physical health care.
Chi as a word stems from the Chinese - it is the most important vital energy flowing through every living thing and person, good balanced flowing of chi brings about good health. It represents the interconnected energy of the inner spirit of all things in nature. It sums up the spirit and attitude we bring to developing services as consultants.
AriaDiCasa™ is our model for environment design, development and coaching.
AriaDiCasa™ stems directly from our evidence base, our concept of Chi™ and integrated service design as well as co-design principles. It is a means of humanising and socialising environments to make them fun, enjoyable & easy to use, with a minimum of stress, anxiety & time wastage. The result is effective, positively recognisable and different design that embraces the services / lifestyle carried out there - every space is developed so that it is easy to discover what you are in search of and to make the purpose of the activity happening there explicit and a delight. Environments designed on this model are well integrated with their natural surroundings and local community.
'Aria di casa' as an expression stems from the Italian - it describes not home itself, for which they have no comparable word, but rather the 'scent' / 'idea' / 'sense of safety' / 'character' / 'mood' that makes up the sense of home, the confidence and comfort that a sense of home brings. That ease of socialising, choice making, and positive mood that comes with anywhere we get this sense of home, this 'aria di casa'. At Metamorphosen™ we have this expression - that environments form an 'Affective Theatre™' - they set the stage and options for positive and negative affect, mood, choice making and outlook, changing our perception of ourselves and the opportunities and/or services around us.
Taking design consultancy further... if you do not have your own preferred firm of architects, interior designers or other option for us to provide consultancy and workshops to, should our schedule be free, we are able to offer full architectural services via our own specialist firm, Architectonicus - www.architectonicus.co.uk / www.dementiaarchitects.co.uk

The Fellowship compliments the strategies we have developed through extensive study of research documents covering the causes of wellbeing, enhancing staff retention, effects of different types of activity provision, peri-personal space, body schema, cognitive bias, sensory need, positive and negative affect, development of identity, positive psychology, positive choice making and factors related to positive management and experience of daytime and 24hr services... ... and much more...

Consulting to different levels in each project on design and service model.

We are deeply passionate about enhancing the whole future, concept and expectations around social care, health care and healthy ageing at every age, their associated support environments and what integrated services can do for people and communities as a whole. Our model is at the cutting edge of well studied, evidence based transformative change making for the entire concept and delivery of integrated healthcare, social care, residential, daytime, mental health and wider support services including for elder care and dementia.
